WH Works: Employment

Welcome House Works provides residents access to a variety of employment resources that are integral to recovery. These programs include:

Rehabilitative Jobs Program

With a network of employers and agencies willing to provide permanent or temporary employment opportunities, the Rehabilitative Jobs Program at Welcome House provides recovering residents opportunity, a structured daily routine, a sense of community, responsibility and productivity. 

Though employment or placement is not guaranteed, Welcome House residents generally find employment within the first week of residency.

Jumpstart Program

Because all residents are required to pay program fees at Welcome House, the Rehabilitative Jobs Program includes an “emergency aid” component called Jumpstart. New residents without employment must participate in Jumpstart while also seeking permanent employment. Jumpstart participants work up to twenty hours per week in their first two weeks of residency to earn credit toward room and board.

Welcome House Works Employment Program

A signature program currently in development to provide immediate, temporary employment opportunities for residents in need of work.

On-Site Employment Opportunities

Additionally, the Welcome House offers limited and temporary on-site employment and work experience opportunities in program support roles.  Open to current residents in the Sober Living Recovery Program only, these positions include serving at the reception desk, in the kitchen, as a driver (with clean driving record), or in property maintenance and custodial roles.
